The Russian Federation: Review of the dairy sector

The Russian dairy sector has shown a number of positive trends in recent years, from a rise in milk production and increased modernization to greater investments from both the public and private sectors. But it also continues to face challenges such as intense international trade competition, seasonal milk shortages and volatile prices for milk and dairy products just to name a few. This FAO/EBRD study on the dairy sector in the Russian Federation touches on both the challenges and opportunities. 

The study, published in English and Russian, stems from a series of activities, including a national workshop and a study tour in Italy aimed at boosting sales of traditional dairy products.
